Fog can make for arround the best picture one can shoot ! Look for the meteo and learn to predict when the fog start to retire/come. This is when you can get the most spectacular shoots. For landscape, a big part of it is knowing the area, where to come, what angle/framing to get but also when and what atmospheric condition will bring the best of it !
I do realize fog can work in a photos (Click Here, doesn't fit in this thread), but unfortunately, I also live in the Central Valley of California where the fog is thick and low to the ground. Yesterday, I couldn't see 100 feet. Anyway, I think fog is best when it is a little less dense and there is a bit more interest in the way of trees, topography, rivers, etc. Most of that doesn't exist in my immediate location. Of course if I didn't work, I could drive places and get some cool stuff or fly up to Oregon like I did for the photo I posted in the other thread linked before.

Anyway, the image below is from the 15 mm, coincidentally on the same day as the fog image I linked above but at the bottom of the canyon: Handheld, K3, ISO 800, f/8, 1/30-sec.

Actually, I have processed a photo with the 15 mm that I took in the Oregon fog. This is an HDR shot at ISO 400 and f/8 looking across the Columbia River.




And the more cliche photo from Oregon, but a nice one because with the 15 mm I could stand right up at the rail and fit the whole waterfall into the image. Although, I do feel that the wide angle, portrait orientation here takes a little away from the image because it doesn't seem as high from this perspective as it was years ago shooting with something more like a 30 mm lens.

One more sunset in Circus Park. I really need to visit other parks, though.

I have so enjoyed looking at the photographs in this thread. So much that I have now bought the 15mm Limited myself (it took a little while to save for it!). Thank you all for the inspiration, and I look forward to offering my own contributions very soon.

Nice composition. HD coating? Only thing I would do is cool the white balance a bit, it is a tad warm for my tastes, but that's just me.

Welcome to the club!

I love old cars...

My project this Saturday was to visit a car museum and a car club gathering to photograph some old cars using just the 15mm DA Limited on my K3. It was a good choice, as often my space to maneuver was limited, and the wide angle allowed me to cover my subject matter and crop later.

Here are some samples:











I took many more shots, but just haven't had time today to process them.

I'm glad I chose the 15mm for this shoot!
